This family, fun community event will bring together people of our community and veterans who have served our nation. You get two races for the price of one!! The 5k through historic Wickford Village and a .152k fun run will allow people of all ages and abilities to complete. Both runs will be conducted like a typical road race, complete with bib numbers, start/finish line, timing, and water stations. All race participants will be given a T-shirt with a unique, specially designed race logo, a race medal, and a ‘goodie’ bag with assorted swag.


Enjoy a run through Historic Wickford Village, named 2022 Best Historic Small Town in America by USA Today. Established in 1709, Wickford Village provides picturesque waterfront streets with one-of-a-kind shops featuring jewelry, housewares, clothing, and more. Your run will take you past galleries, antique shops, cafes, restaurants, beautifully maintained churches, colonial homes, and gardens.
